Sign made from genuine old wood legally harvested from within internationally recognised borders by the smiling children of ethnic minorities, hand carved by happy and generously paid immigrants working voluntarily in comfortable workshops, then painted and lacquered with safe and wholesome materials. An insignificant number of people and animals were maimed and executed in its preparation, and meaningless levels of environmental pillage and destruction occurred. Please stay safe!

Sorry to learn that the Yangzhe River has been reduced t. o Dribs and Drabs. No more drowning! Safety triumph! Long live Chairman Mao.

literally says “ten ten teki teki, anzen dai ichi” or… “point point, drop drop, safety first”.
That said, is someone using this sign to rappel down to the Yangtze?

点点滴滴 is the commie spelling of 點點滴滴 (diǎndiǎn dīdī), which means “bit by bit.” Still doesn’t make much sense.
